Zendaya becomes Barbara Gordon and suits up as Batgirl in a fan-made image for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman universe.
We might still have over a year to wait until Robert Pattinson’s The Batman releases into theaters, but many fans are already imagining what the rest of the Bat-Family could look like in this new universe by Matt Reeves. One name that’s been thrown around for Barbara Gordon is Spider-Man and Euphoria star Zendaya. Her performance in Euphoria proves she can hold her own against some heavy themes, and it seems like Matt Reeves’ The Batman world will feature exactly that if the film’s first trailer is anything to go by.
We’ll see a version of Barbara Gordon appear on the small screen first, as the character will have a role in the highly-anticipated third season of HBO Max’s Titans. And although many Batman fans are keen to see Robin or Nightwing appear in the Robert Pattinson film, introducing Batgirl could offer an interesting glimmer of light in the darkness of this new Gotham City. Artist “Mizuri” has shared a concept that depicts Zendaya as Batgirl, giving the Euphoria star a costume that looks similar to the suit seen in the Arkham games. You can see Zendaya suited up as Batgirl below.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as Gotham City’s Dark Knight. The Batman will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films starring Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman features Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Zendaya, Batgirl and Robert Pattinson’s upcoming film, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
